Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan to leave for United Kingdom on working visit

Armenian
President Serzh Sargsyan will pay a working visit to the United Kingdom of
Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the press service of the President reports.


 


On
September 4, the President of the Republic of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan will
attend a meeting of heads of State and government of NATO-member States and
nations involved in International Security Assistance Forces in Afghanistan /
ISAF / in Newport on the margins of the upcoming NATO summit. The President
will deliver a speech at the meeting.


 


The
concluding gathering to be held in a NATO-International Security Assistance
Forces format will sum up the results of ISAF's Afghanistan mission and will
outline the areas and objectives of the new Resolute Support mission.


 


By joining
the above international mission in 2010 and contributing with a
126-member-strong contingent, Armenia propped up the common effort of the
international community toward bringing security and nationwide reconciliation
to Afghanistan. Our country is committed to continued participation in the new
mission.


 


Late on
September 4, the meeting participants will be received by His Royal Highness
Prince Charles of Wales, followed by an informal dinner in honor of the heads
of participating States and international organizations.


 


The
Armenian and Azerbaijani Presidents are expected to meet on the margins of the
summit. During his visit to Baku, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan sid
that Ankara would raise the Karabakh issue at the summit. 


 


In the
meantime, ArmInfo's diplomatic sources think that the Karabakh problem is
unlikely to be thoroughly discussed at the summit. They believe that the summit
will focus on the Ukrainian crisis. 
Nevertheless, the sources do not rule out possible reflection of the
Karabakh issue in the final resolution of the summit.
